Government must ensure full accountability for Lamma ferry crash

Following the death of 39 people when two vessels collided off Lamma Island during the National Day fireworks display last October, the Leung Chun-ying administration immediately appointed a high-level independent commission to look into the cause of the accident. The collision was Hong Kong's worst maritime accident in more than 40 years.
